TOYS AT SCHOOL         Please remind students not to bring their own toys or sports equipment to school.  We have plenty of things for the students to do at school, and unfortunately their own toys/balls etc. tend to cause issues in the classroom and on the playground.  Thank you for monitoring what your child puts in their backpacks. Paddle Boarding will once again be happening this year with instructors Mark Kaercher and Brian Raymer.  This event will be taking place on June 6th at Thetis Lake after school hours.  A special paddle boarding meeting will take place on Tuesday, May 28th  @ 4:30pm for those interested in signing your child up. PARENTS MUST ATTEND MEETING
Looking for gently used books – If you are able to, please send in children’s books in good condition for our book rack in the foyer. Students check this regularly to ‘bring a book/take a book’ and having fresh titles helps keep it going! Attendance at school is important to us.  Please try to have your children at school on time and ready for school.  If your child is late, please remember to sign them in at the office before heading to class.  If your child is going to be away, please call the safe arrivals phone line: 250-478-1447

Student #’s for Ruth King Sept. 2019

As June is quickly approaching, we ask that families who know they will be moving or changing schools for September2019, to let the office know as soon as possible. We appreciate this as it allows us to estimate numbers of students for next year. Thank you for your help with this.
